Reviewer: Robert B. Livingston - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 31, 2013
Subject: 1936 Humorous advice for young women on their own

I love books with clever titles, and found this one to be a curio.

Written, it appears, by an anonymous woman who has skated through four marriages and still is aged under 30-- this is a tongue in cheek celebration of living single. The author is, perhaps, a precursor to Helen Gurley Brown.

The topics and humor must have been quite daring for its time. I found parts of it mildly amusing, and flipped through it mainly to appreciate the clever illustrations by the famed radical artist and cartoonist, William Gropper.
